Anarchy Summer Camp
Woods of Northern Virginia
As we prepare for the upcoming G20 summit in Pittsburgh, the Spring World
Bank and IMF meetings, the ebbs and flows of our respective local campaigns,
and anything else under the sun, we’ll be congregating in the woods of
Northern Virginia for an action-packed Anarchy Summer Camp.
Anarchy Summer Camp (ASC) is tailored to fit every anarchists’ needs: from
the veteran to the newbie, all are welcome. ASC is not an accredited Summer
Camp. We do, however, have the following skills and knowledge to share with
all campers: building and using shields and reinforced banners, navigating
through the woods, sharpening your knives, permaculture, terrain analysis,
health and safety in the streets, and more! Campers will start their day
with a morning run to get the blood flowing and a group stretch. We will
explore area ponds, lakes, and dumpsters. Group activities abound at Anarchy
Summer Camp including, but not limited to: Capture the Flag, evasion games,
wind sprints, and tactical aquatics.
And if you’re concerned about your camper not getting a well balanced camp
experience, we also offer educational workshops on: anarchist theory, World
Bank/IMF/World Bank Group, neoliberalism, monetary theory, radical
environmental history, police tactics, know your rights, alternative
research sources, internet security, and corporate crimes.
The peak of Anarchy Summer Camp will be the “G20 in 412 Infosession and
Discussion,” to take place Saturday evening. This will be the culmination of
Summer Camp. We hope all campers can stay for this important gathering.
If you would like to join us for Anarchy Summer Camp, please act quickly, as
space is limited. Please fill out the form below. We kindly ask that you do
not provide any personal information unless you really want us to have it.
We really don’t want your personal information though…really. Upon receipt
of the form, we will send you the exact location of Anarchy Summer Camp.
Anarchy Summer Camp is open to all, regardless of anyone’s ability to pay.
That being said, it does cost some money to put the camp together, as we
will be providing all meals, workshops, and cabin space. We therefore kindly
ask for a suggested donation of $10-50 for the camp. No one will be turned
away for lack of funds.
All campers will be on a task/chore group. Please indicate in the form which
one you prefer (see below for options). Remember, Summer Camp is supposed to
be fun, but we all need to chip in to make it run smoothly. If you do not
indicate your preference, one will be assigned for you…and that’s no fun.
We have agreed to the following general rules for ASC. If you do not think
you can abide by them, then Anarchy Summer Camp is not the place for you.
1. No drugs or alcohol.
2. No weapons other than pocket knives.
3. Oppressive behavior will not be tolerated.
Finally, (do we really need to say this?) law enforcement and snitches are
not permitted at Anarchy Summer Camp.
Please bring the following items to Anarchy Summer Camp. If you do not have
any of them, please let us know beforehand, and we will try to help you
sheets/sleeping bag/blanket (we have cots)
citronella to ward off mosquitos (or bug spray)
change of clothes
bowl,plate, fork,spoon, cup
mountain bike (optional)
food to share
